Bahraich: Tight security arrangements have
been made along the Indo-Nepal border after a high alert was
sounded in the state following the serial blasts in Mumbai, a
senior SSB official said.

"All the border outposts (BOPs) have been kept on high
alert. Patrolling in sensitive border areas has been increased
to check anti-national elements," the official said today.

An alert has already been sounded in the state by UP
police following yesterday`s synchronised blasts in Mumbai,
which killed 21 persons and left 141 others injured.

All district police chiefs have been asked to maintain
strict vigil in crowded places, including railway stations,
markets and malls and carry out intensive searches, he said.
